[applause] >> good afternoon. i also am not john newlin, and i have less hair than him.

admiral john banoff in 89 after the earthquake. he was still with the navy. helped us tremendously with a aircraft carrier and the work in recovery, and in 1992 mayor jordan sought to seek his leadership and have him head up what is today our dem but at that time it was the office of emergency services so for five years i got to work with admiral bit off and lead the effort at oes but at the time that we really required some strong leadership because it was shortly after the 101 california shootings that we realized very clearly different agencies within the city had to speak more deliberately with each other, had to have systems and communications and culture built around much more collaboration, particularly with communication. well, that spawned this particular building, and its housing of not only the emergency management, but its physical location of our 911 emergency dispatch system which is right upstairs, and that was started on and under the leadership of admiral bit dlf off. it was concluded very well. he then went on to what i say was parallel to me because i thought

? and why have the members of the ethics commission advocated their responsibility to the director john saint croy in matters that go to the very heart of the open and honest operation. it is a real shame that a citizen of this city has to actually fight with boards and commissions who have taken an oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states and that of the state of california, who in some cases even have a chance to speak. and this is protected political free speech. and to represent it in some other way than a person who is speaking in the original, official records is nothing but censorship. and you want to censor it, which is why it has gone on this long. included in one of the determinations from the task force was a directive to the city attorney who stopped telling city bodies that not following the law as written, is wrong. and quit advising them to do it. this also referred to the district attorney office as well as this. >> good evening, commissioners, my name is dr. derek kerr. and i have comment that relates to the executive director's report and your a
, john. >> they are very interesting times. of course, the focus has been on the very few men at the very top of the party, for good reason. we have heard a lot less from ordinary chinese citizens this week because they have almost no say in the power transition taking place here in beijing. nonetheless, this is all about the party, of course. this is not the changing of the offices of state but the shuffling of key positions at the top of the communist party. in that sense, in the broadest possible sense, the opinions of party members do matter. we have been speaking to just three of them. but people are for most, says the slogan at this factory gate. inside, the flame of party loyalties still burn strong. and you don't have to search hard for a reason. a safety supervisor has been a communist party member for six years. a period of booming economic growth during which across the country the organization has added another 7 million members to its ranks. the people's lives are getting better, he says. china is moving in the right direction to becoming cheap -- toward becoming a developed
with you. john matarese as more. >> reporter: how would you like a 20% discount on your car? to get it are you willing to let your insurance company monitor your driving? you may have seen ads for safe driving. >> do you own a home? discount. >> reporter: progressive offers a program called snapshot that can lower your rate up to 30%. you have to let them install a gadget to monitor your driving. >> i like this because it makes you aware of your driving. >> reporter: she signed up for snapshot on her ford. she's a naturally defensive driver but said it took awhile to have big brother watching her. >> at first i was worried about it. my husband was not. i was concerned about them tracking. >> so what's this like having your driving monitor. progressive sent us a snapshot. i soon learned any sort of hard stop triggers a warning beep. every hard stop is recorded and posted on progressive's website for you to see when you log. the spokesperson said, don't worry, your rates will not go up if you sign aggressively. this will go down if you watch the speed limit. >> the best case up to 30%

than john mccain. >> i think what stands out about obama's victory to me is how ugly it was, this was identity politics on steroids telling black people republicans wanted to take away their right to vote and telling women there's war on them that seniors, that paul ryan wants to push granny off the cliff in a wheelchair. this is not the hope and change obama, this was not, there's no red state and blue state obama. he won ugly, it's divisive and if this is the template for how democrats want to win elections going forward to this-- >> and i can tell you what the reaction in the white house would be if they heard you say that, they would say get over it, grow up, this is politics, republicans got a, you know, put on their boxing gloves and get over it. >> oh, yeah. >> paul: so what? you know. >> i won, you know, suck it up. >> i agree. this is the new benchmark the way you win a presidential campaign. no question about it, it's too bad, but that's the way it is. i want to elaborate on one of kim's points. the turnout machine, it did not materialize after the convention in au
honor, celebrate and remember ambassador john christopher chris stevens. a son of northern california and the bay area, ambassador stevens tragically lost his life in the greatest service to his country. selflessly and courageously representing american values in a foreign nation he knew intimately and cared for deeply. in his diplomatic capacity, ambassador stevens brought a profound and prolific knowledge of arab world and middle east to his assignment. his exemplary gift for making personal connections was invaluable as his role as specific representative and ambassador to one of the most complex and challenging regions of the world. therefore as we join in recognizing ambassador stevens am myself midst a sober outpouring of praise from his family, colleagues, fellow americans and the leaders of this nation, we remember also that chris stevens was beloved by many libyans as well. therefore on behalf of the residents of northern california and our entire state, we join president barack obama, secretary of state hillary rodham clinton, democratic leader nancy pelosi and ex

director john dickerson. david, i want to go back to you. someone was just saying your twitter feed-- >> dee dee made that point. i want to make clear-- i'm not condoning what david petraeus did, nor what the woman did. you know, but i do think that people are human. we have worked for human leaders ourselves, dee dee. and we understand that people ought to be sort of-- take it in context and understand when people are human they make mistakes. some of our greatest moral leaders have done that. there's just a new book out about thomas jefferson and his weaknesses he experienced in life. and yet he was a great leader of this country. what i do believe is that we should see it in the larger context and that is general petrace has given this country distinguished service for over 40 years. he has put his life on the line on a continuous basis. he was nearly killed in service earlier on. and he has been a wonderful, wonderful role model for a lot of people, and we ought to understand his humanness and appreciate that. >> i think the american people are willing to forgive leaders for the

of the republican party right now. there's the faction that would be amenable to the deal and somebody like john boehner is going to be working toward a deal. and then there's the other side, the more tea party republicans who aren't going to want to accept this, who aren't going to be okay with raising taxes on anyone. and so i think we are going to see a little bit of a fight here. that said, they don't want to be the ones that cause the country to go over the cliff. it's going to be an interesting couple of weeks. >> i think fewer people are more representative of the other side. does grover norquist have any clout? >> he has some. can he stop a short-term deal from being done? it's the desire to never cut a dime from the defense or the military budget. i think the question will be -- we will see a deal, will it be another short-term deal that kind of exchanges the stopping of the sequestration cuts of the military spending increases in favor of something like lifting the cap off social security taxes or adding some taxes to the wealthiest families in addition to the ones that are already goi

protocol to clear the building. and i was surprised that vicki henisi, the acting sheriff had called john st. croix and told him on his personal cell phone according to his statement made to kcbs in this room that she called over because there was some threat on the mayor's life. so, now, it was turns out that it is a bomb threat. and i would like to think that the mayor cares about the citizens of this city and county. and i would like to think that if there is a bomb threat in the city hall that the whole building is evacuated. >> i was upset in the minutes that we could say easily on the 29th. mr. hur that you recessed the meeting and adjourned it at the end. but i personally witnessed it in the meeting as soon as the bomb threat came in this meeting was adjourned i saw him do that with my own eyes, next there to mr. st. croix and to here it adjourned and reconvenes and this is unusual and none of it is in the minutes. so the actual record of what actually happened in this room is not accurate. and i object to that. and when i said that this was done inclusion with the mayor and steve
. >> a second grade teacher and her husband died in the blast. for more on the investigation, here's abc's john schriffen. >> reporter: this gaping hole is all that's left. charred foundations burnted out roofs, jarred by explosion so intense that at least two people are dead and at least eight others injured. >> garage doors blown in, house blown in. >> reporter: this neighborhood was rocked from their beds as a blast ignited two homes and ignited several others. many in pajamas clutching their pets. a scene so desperate, neighbors rushed in to help. >> as soon as i got to the house, i heard people screaming. all i could think of, these people have to get out or they're not going to make it. so i just ran in, not even thinking, me and andrew here, and pulled them out as fast as we could. >> reporter: investigators are now combing through the rubble looking for clues. >> so far, the survey has indicated that there are no gas leaks in the area. however, we've got a lot more investigation to do. >> whantsd so puzzling to investigators that they say in the days before the blast, there were no repo
disciples and 12 guice he spent special time with, three, peter, james and john huji singled out for special leadership training and against all odds there is one disciple identified as the one whom jesus loved where from across jesus basically gives his mother to john, the beloved disciple and gives john the beloved to settle to his mom and says take care of each other. when his mother and brothers came looking for him because he was making too much, jesus said it goes against the role of my father and mother and brothers, he knows about families of choice. .. clearly a deep and spiritual relationship or that between jesus and the olympic disciple. but i don't think we hope our case any to extrapolate from that more than the tax can bear. the shoshone people of what is fair and just let them sit with it. like really, i think we'd be better off. right here, who's next? >> thank you for your talk. i was actually raised to make church similar to what you describe. our church was 12,000 people and it was predominately blacks. i work for mass equality is a community engagement organizer and some
difference. >> reporter: an explosion left john peck a quadruple amputee. here's sergeant peck getting his first look at the smart home built near fredericksburg, virginia, specifically for the physical challenges he faces. >> i lost some parts of me, but my gratitude and my attitude will never change, this will actually wrig lly brighten up m. every day i go to work i can come home and be like, ah, this is my house. >> at one point someone had said john might have lost his arms and his legs but he has not lost his heart. and that is very true. >> reporter: sergeant peck chose to have his new home built here in chancellorsville. this land haerkens back to the civil war battles. the house was designed by the tunnel-to-towers foundation which grew out of the tragedy of 9/11. it's dedicated to the memory of fallen firefighters stephen siller, its mission to build high-tech homes for military heroes who have been grievously injured. >> what this will do is actually control the lighting, the tvs, the home automation, cabinetry, temperature, everything that we have included in the house to make
. >> john leach. >> thank you, mr. speaker, the tragic death of david lee collins while off duty in cyprus is a devastating blow to his mother, my constituent, and to family and friend in the constituency and across manchester. will the deputy prime minister assure me that the foreign office and the ministry of defense are working with cypriot authorities to ensure the perpetuators are brought to justice? >> hear, hear. >> first, i think everybody, our hearts go out to the mother and indeed the family and friends of david lee collins who came to such an untimely death in the way he described. and it's obviously right for him to raise this issue on behalf of david lee collins, his mother. and i can certainly assure him the ministry of defense and the foreign office are doing everything they can to find out exactly what happened to bring the perpetuators to justice and i'm sure the secretary of defense who is here will seek to keep him updated as things evolve. >> rosie cooper. >> thank you, mr. speaker. homes were wrecked and much needed crops were destroyed in the devastating floods that a
, the image of a charred neighborhood. in a moment here, a tour of the scene, but first, abc's john schriffen with the newest clues. authorities speaking just moments ago. >> reporter: this gaping hole is all that's left. charred foundations, burnt-out roofs, surrounded by pieces of homes scattered everywhere. an explosion so intense at least two people are now dead and at least eight others injured. >> garage doors blown in, windows blown in, houses completely leveled, nothing left. >> reporter: late last night, this suburban community outside of indianapolis was rocked from their beds when a blast obliterated two homes and ignited several others. nearly 200 people were forced to quickly flee into the streets, many wearing pajamas, clutching their pets. a scene so desperate, neighbors rushed in to help. >> as soon as i got to the house and i heard those people screaming, the only thing i could think of was, these people have to get out or they're not going to make it. i just ran in, without even thinking, me and andrew here and just pulled them out. as fast as we could. >> reporter: investig
for the presentation and for the department of technology john. john, how are you? we have john from the department of technology and wanted to speak as well and welcome. >> thank you supervisors and thank you civil grand jury for your report and everyone attending. i want to take a few moments. i don't want to rehash the stuff said and commented on and you probably want a rich dialogue in question and answer period. i want to visit a few of points and give context to the conversation and like you i am fascinated by the title of the report and we should revisit a little bit and after being here for five years now where we have been and where we are coming to. in terms of deja vu let's reflect back where we were as individuals with technology or as an organization with the city. when i joined the city we didn't have a plan or a governance structure or coit and sun shet and talking about creating this structure and we were struggling how much money were we spending on it in the city? when i came here there wasn't a report? and so it has been a long and complex journey, and i think it will cont
>>> at the top of the show we asked, why are you awake? john tower has the answers. >> i'm up to see if mika lapses into an ambien and vodka moment of clarity and finally smacks joe. >> oh. >> and william in new york city, i like this new format. i never imagined that joe had such nice legs. >> you know, he does. thank you very much. thank you, john. "morning joe" starts right now. >> he is very much an intellectual, as you know, and a scholar, atypical military scholar, and i think that is another reason why the agency fits in well. it's much more analytic organization. they have the paramilitary arm as well. he appreciates the intellectual stimulation there, the brains versus brawn, although they have it all, and the military does, too. he's very happy where he's at now. >> that was paula broadwell on "morning joe" back in january, the woman at the center of the alleged extramarital affair. and we use the word "alleged" very loosely there with cia director david petraeus which led to the resignation from his post on friday. good morning. with us on set, msnbc political analy
in libya as it has been and continues to be in some other parts of the middle east. >> from st. john's college in santa fe, new mexico, my question is -- i am interesting -- interested in it if in the arab spring, it is more united, -- my question is, what i am interested in is if the arabs spring is more united -- the arab spring, if it is more united. >> world affairs forum from stanford, connecticut. one man spoke a little while ago in new york, and he made a couple of major points, one of which was the need for the growth of the spirit of pluralism across the middle east. when he was asked what the seeds of that growth would be a -- would be, it was that americans would not have much to do in creating or fostering it. i would ask this panel, are their seeds of growth of political pluralism -- are there seeds? or is the question not so relevant? >> marc, you said in the book is a different phenomenon. because of the connectivity that shibley talked about, people can respond in real time -- >> starting with aljazeera and moving through social media, twitter, that sort of thing, gre
on the investigation here's abc's john schifrin. >> reporter: this gaping hole is all that's left. charred foundations, burned out roofs, surrounded by pieces of homes scattered everywhere. an explosion so intense at least two people are now dead and at least eight others injured. >> garage doors blown in. windows blown in. houses completely leveled. nothing left. >> reporter: this suburban community outside of indianapolis was rocked from their beds when blast obliterated two homes and ignited several others. nearly 200 people were forced to quickly flee into the streets, many wearing pajamas, clutching their pets, a scene so desperate, neighbors rushed in to help. >> as soon as i got to the house and heard people screaming only thing i could think of these people had to got out or they're not going to make it. i just ran in without thinking, me and andrew here, pulled them out as fast as we could. >> reporter: investigators are combing through the rubble looking for clues. >> so far that survey has indicated there are no gas leaks in the area, however, we've got a lot more investigation to do. >> re
refused to consider higher tax rates. timing is also a sticking point here. here is john boehner this weekend. >> 2013 should be the year to begin to solve our debt through tax reform and entitlement reform. together we should avert the fiscal cliff in a manner that ensures 2013 finally is that year. >> no accident, by the way, it was boehner who did the republican response to the president this weekend. the president holds the most leverage in the next two months, directly after the election and before tax rates expire. when the threat of a tax increase on the middle class hangs over the negotiations. republicans would like to try out the negotiations to see the political climate is better for them in the next congress. the big question is how much did the white house learn from the failed debt talk to 2011? will the president bypass leader ship and begin to try to deal directly with the republican senators who have sounded the most open to compromise. >> i think there is a deal. the ying and yang of this is we know there have to be revenues. look, i haven't met a wealthy republ
a challenge. john thune would be the strongest challenge. >> would thune have the ability to attract the so-called tea party or the most conservative and confrontational crowd? or are they waiting for jim demint or rand paul or mike lee -- >> i mean if one of the tea party crowd ran, i don't think they would get very many votes. you know, we talk about them a lot but in the senate g.o.p. you have more mainstream establish republicans than you do tea party people. so, it would be like a heath schuler taking on nancy pelosi after 20910 elections. >> and mcconnell, interestingly who is the pair gone of the republican establishment has won them over. he made uneasy peace with and paul. it looks to me like mitch mcconnell has wanted to be majority leader since the senate race, ever since then he wanted to be majority leader. now he may never be. things do not look that much better for the republicans two years from now than they do now. he will also face a primary in two years. >> he may or may not. back in 2010 there was a contested primary in kentucky. that caused a bit of a
fewer votes than john mccain, and it looks like he's 2 million fewer, i would have been dumbfounded. >> dumbfounded. is all this a sign that republicans are now ready to meet in the middle on issues like immigration and taxes? will they move faster on immigration? you can join our conversation on twitter. you can find me at @tamronhall and my team at @newsnation. having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and my daughter loves the santa. oh, ah sir. that is a customer. let's not tell mom.
